The eruption continues and shows no signs of stopping soon. The lava now flows in two branches, one to the east and one to the north. The lava has covered around 37 square km since the eruption began on august 31. But as it is, it has no danger to people or properties. Tourists are not allowed to the eruption, but some travel agencies here in Iceland offer a flight over the eruption and the price is 320 to 640 Euros. The eruption has already become the largest lava eruption in Iceland since the 19th century, the largest lave eruption before this was in Askja in 1875.
